What you can expect

Ride into the mountains of the Swabian Alps for a visit to one of the most remarkable fortresses in Germany. This day trip carries you through the charming woodland of the German south on a journey filled with history and stories from the height of the House of Hohenzollern.

Depart from Frankfurt for the drive south into the forests of Baden-Wurttemburg. You get an outstanding look at the isolated peak of Hohenzollern as the mountain rises over the countryside, crowned by the majestic 19th-century castle that stands atop its peak.

As you step onto the castle grounds, your guide explains how an earlier fortress built on this mountain lent its name to the family dynasty that would rise to rule the kingdom of Prussia and become emperors of Germany. Reflect on 1,000 years of heritage, from Friedrich I to Wilhelm II, as you explore the mighty ramparts, courtyard, and towers, and get some spectacular photos of the surrounding lands.

Next, follow your guide into the grand halls and exquisitely furnished rooms, where old paintings, porcelain, and works of gold and silver rest among artifacts from the Hohenzollern dynasty. Get a look at a uniform that belonged to Frederick the Great and the crown of Kaiser Wilhelm II before you depart for the journey back to Frankfurt.
